7. City of Houghton Winter Water Recommendations for Off Campus Renters
from the City of Houghton

For the Off Campus Michigan Tech students who will be leaving on break at the end of this week, the City of Houghton recommends the following to prevent frozen water pipes:

1. Leave the water running in the house/apartment at the least the size of a pencil. Leave a note or sign letting others know to leave the water running. Please email if you are letting the water run so that she can provide a credit on the water account in the spring. All credits are based on city policy and previous consumption.

2. Let your landlord know that you are leaving town so that they can make arrangements to have someone check on the water situation daily.

3. The city recommends that you do not turn your furnace down lower than 65 degrees.

4. If water is running slow, it may be starting to freeze, please turn on all of the faucets fully until the water runs normally and then keep one faucet running at all times. Again, please let the city know that the water will be left running.

5. If the water in the house freezes, please contact a local plumber to thaw the pipes. There are several local plumbers/contractors that have the equipment to do so. Contact the city office at 482-1700 for a current list.

6. Local plumbers and contractors can be contacted to set up a phone monitoring system to monitor heat and water situations in the house when it is vacant.
